We got to find a good nickname for Cody Ross. The guy is having an unbelievable start to the 2009 season.
Today Ross goes 3/4 with a home run in the 8th inning and a 3-run double to untie the game in the top of the 9th. The runs lead to the Heat’s 11th win as Matt Lindstrom entered the game in a save situation and shut down the Nationals.
Poor DC fans. They must really hate the Marlins right now who have absolutely owned their franchise going back to last season.
This Marlins team is playing amazing baseball. It is hard to believe because even as a fan, you expect your team to win. I actually expected that this franchise should have been in the playoffs last year and held them to the same standard this year. But what they are doing right now is darn near unfathomable.
They take on the Pirates next and the trend could easily shift the other direction as perhaps the tendency would be to overlook their opponent. Yet you get the sense that this team is focused and won’t allow that to happen. They have great clubhouse chemistry and even the knew guys look the part – both Gload and Bonifacio are filling in nicely.
The Marlins have the league’s top record and they way their starting pitching has been they will have a great chance of getting a win each day out there. The Fish are swimming.
